Summary: Ty and Gemma make a desperate alliance with the Seablite Gang to help Ty’s parents, who face criminal charges of sedition, but teaming up with outlaws may have pull them deeper into the underwater underworld than they intend to go.

What makes it distinguished? Everything! (You probably want specifics so here I go.)
This book is a science fiction mystery that makes you want to keep reading. It’s a real page turner! The main character is Ty, who is courageous and determined. Ty and his family live subsea. They are pioneers. When Ty’s parents get kidnapped … the story unfolds. The plot is interesting. It isn’t fast paced (a lot of you will be groaning, but you shouldn’t) but it doesn’t need to be. It has adventure, action, bravery, ingenuity and under the sea nightmares. You might be wondering why it’s called Rip Tide. Well, it’s after a drilling dock that is now inhabited by surfs (read it to find out what they are!) Also, many important events happen there. The last reason you won’t find out until YOU READ IT.
I personally think the author did an amazing job describing under the sea life, Ty and Dark Gifts. She made them almost come to life. The only thing you MUST know is that this book is a sequel. But you don’t have to have read the first to understand the second. This is one of my favorite books and I already think this deserves the OPLbery award! Take my advice and read it!-Maggie

I have read the first book but it doesn’t matter because you don’t need to read the first one to understand this one. This book was so distinguished I didn’t want to put it down. This book was extremely interesting. It is about Ty and Gemma as they try to rescue Ty’s parents, who were kidnapped by surfs. By trying to solve this problem they run into other problems, like the anchored and left to die townships. It definitely deserves the OPLberry award out of the books I have read so far. YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK. END OF STORY. PERIOD.-Olivia

This book is amazing!!!I love this book because it is a book you can’t put down. I would recommend this book to everyone. I love this book!!! This book is about a boy named Ty.Ty is an underwater pioneer. When his parents get kidnapped the story unfolds. -Eric

If you like books about the future, Rip Tide is the book for you. The book’s setting is in the ocean which somehow got bigger. Ty and his friend Gemma are the main characters. They help the seaguard solve a mystery. Three underwater townships have mysteriously disappeared and Ty and Gemma find one of the townships. The discovered township was anchored to the bottom of the sea, its engines were disabled and the windows and escape hatches were chained shut. When Ty gets home after dropping Gemma off at the trade station Ty’s family go on a trip together. On the trip Ty’s parents get kidnapped by the surfs. The rest of the story is how Ty save his parents and solves the missing township mystery.-Elliot
